Windies vs India: Combined XI from the Test series

The Indian middle-order showed its strength as Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane and Hanuma Vihari contributed big in both games and put the Indian team in a position of strength.

The Indian captain had an indifferent and a rather underwhelming series. For the first time since March 2017, Virat Kohli did not score a hundred in a Test series. Moreover, he had a couple of failures, including a golden duck in the second innings of the second Test.

While he looked rushed in the first innings of the first Test, he failed to convert two excellent half-centuries into big tons in his next two innings. He scored a lot of runs in the white-ball leg of this tour and looked good here as well.

Kohli scored half-tons from tricky positions and helped India recover from wobbly situations. However, he failed to convert his two fifties which was a little surprising. Hence, the Indian skipper finished the series with 136 runs.
